Actually I do suffer form vertigo very badly, to the extent I find it difficult to play video games where height is involved like Tomb Raider or Batmam Arkham City.

Yet as these are stills I can look with no problems at all.

Strange?

Great pics!

I have no problems with heights, when I was about 10 I was up in the Space Needle and my dad held me out so I could take pictures straight down.

Great pictures, but i must point out that Vertigo is not the fear of heights, it's a whirling sensation caused by an inner ear disorder that may be triggered by looking down from tall things (or sometimes up at tall things) but is not exclusively caused by such.
I have Vertigo, but mine is caused by flickering lights, heights don't worry me.

Fear of heights is Acrophobia, from the Greek akron meaning peak.

Those are some cool pictures! I'm not afraid of heights, or even falling. But should I fall, the abrupt stop at the ground frightens me considerably.

That's only a short moment to be frightened, the next moment you don't know it anymore.(if you're falling from a high altitude that is)
